About a week ago e.l.f. decided to have one of their 50% off their Studio line sales and I took full advantage of it! Don't worry if you missed the sale this time e.l.f. is runs different ones all the time so you'll always get a good deal.
I'm on a little bit of a secret "no-buy" for makeup right now (I say secret because it's not a set rule for me, I'm just trying to really work my stash and get some use out of what I have for a while) but I allowed myself some new brushes since I always get use out of them!
Onto the stuff I picked up:
I was actually really pleased with how high quality the Stipple Brush is, I was expecting it to be a bit flimsy from how it looked online but it's actually perfect for applying cream products on the face and blending them out nicely.
The Flawless Concealer Brush is also a bit different than it looks, you might think it's more of just a brush to swipe some powder on under the eyes but it's actually quite dense so it can also be used to work liquid concealers into the under-eye area!
As you can see I went a little crazy with stocking up on plain old flat shader brushes! Those are one item that you really cannot have enough of. I was expecting these to be thinner and less fluffy, it makes me a little nervous that it will add some fall out when I use them with shimmery colors.
The Mineral Powder Brush was a bit of a disappointment, I wanted to use it more as a rounded blush brush but it's actually quite small. I'll have to experiment with it for contouring and possibly highlighting!
Are there any e.l.f. brushes that are essentials for you guys?
